On Thursday afternoon, Blizzard Entertainment released details of eight Hearthstone cards receiving balance changes in their upcoming 17.6 patch scheduled for July 14. Once the patch goes live, all players will be able to disenchant the cards seeing changes for a full dust refund for two weeks.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Hearthstone development team released a blog post detailing their most recent round of nerfs to their collectible card game and auto-chess game mode, Battlegrounds. With the Descent of Dragons expansion launching a little more than a week ago, this round of nerfs is the fastest to come after a card set was introduced in the game's history. As "Shamanstone" has returned as a meme within the community due to the class's higher-than-average power-level, the development team moved quickly to even out the playing field prior to members of the company taking a holiday break in the upcoming days. While there are numerous cards in the current meta that individuals suspected would be targeted in this round of balance changes, three Shaman cards and one neutral power-house were hit.
